SIU Not Laying Charges After St. Catharines Man Injured During Arrest

SIU Director say NRP officers acted lawfully after a man was injured during an arrest.

No charges will be laid against Niagara Regional Police after a St. Catharines man was injured while being arrested. 

On May 18th, an officer tried to pull over a man driving a motorcycle without a license plate. 

The motorcyclist stopped at a red light, then sped away from the officer. 

Later that day, the officer found the home the man was staying at, but the man refused to speak to him about the motorcycle. 

A search warrant was obtained. 

During the search, the man was found in the attic, lying down with his arms tucked underneath his chest. 

He was ordered to release his arms, and was met with force when he refused. 

The man was arrested and taken to the police station. 

He was later taken to hospital, where he was diagnosed with a "healing left clavicular fracture."

Special Investigations Unit Director Joseph Martino says there are no grounds to believe any of the officers committed an offence. 

The file is now closed.
